Song comments

1. halc - "Liftoff (Get High)"
Source: Pilotwings - "Light Plane"
Original Composer: Soyo Oka

This is probably the simplest track on the album in terms of composition and production, but sets the tone for the rest of the album. Kick back, grab an in-flight drink, and enjoy. :)

2. halc - "The Evolution of Flight"

Original Composer: Soyo Oka

This track is actually almost a year older than all the others. It was originally for a different project, but ended up being ineligible for various reasons. So, since I was up a Pilotwings remix, I thought why not make a few more and call it an album? The rest is history! :)

3. halc - "Freefall"
Source: Pilotwings - "Sky Diving"
Original Composer: Soyo Oka

This was definitely the toughest to arrange of the bunch, so it ended up becoming more of an intermission of sorts. The lead in this one is actually sampled from the original and timestretched to fit the new key signature.

4. halc - "9-bit Skies"

Original Composer: Soyo Oka

I decided to treat this one a bit more conservatively and focus more on the syncopation and rhythmic variation of the percussion and the interplay between various instruments. I think this came out to be one of my catchiest, most bouncy mixes yet. :)

Original Composer: Soyo Oka

If your familiar with Palpable's excellent remix of the same theme, you'll probably notice that this was heavily inspired by it. I even stole his original melody, hopefully he doesn't mind! ;D

Original Composer: Dan Hess

The album needed some slow-jam/porn-groove action, 'nuff said. ;P

Original Composer: Asuka Ito

djp wanted some 3DS action on the site, so, obviously, I was obliged to make this happen. This one actually built up some dust as a WIP on my hard drive, but my other half was able to help push it across the finish line. Very happy with how this turned out, and I believe it is one of our finest collabs yet. Enjoy the flight. :)
